Nursery pirates

This term, the topic in Nursery is ‘pirates’. The boys have been listening to pirate stories, making tube pirates and last week had a project to make a junk model ship. The results are fabulous and came in an array of sizes.
 
Some boys used milk bottles, others small boxes and a couple of boys made ships you could sit in! Some of the boats were tested in water and floated. Friday’s challenge was then to make an origami boat and to see how many one penny coins it would take to sink it. The record so far is 15…can you beat that?
